Sacramento Mountains Spectroscopy Workshop

February 22-24, 2019
$345 USD
Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA

The first Sacramento Mountains Spectroscopy Workshop was designed to be a bootcamp to help our friends and neighbors get started and move forward with amateur astronomical spectroscopy. SMSW-2 will be bigger and better and we will be able to accommodate many more people, but the goal is still the same. We want to help newbies get started with astronomical spectroscopy and we want to help experienced amateurs learn more and get better. As far as we know, our workshop is unique. You won’t find a bootcamp like this anywhere else in the world.
